Changing Careers to Lead a Better Life

Jocelyn McIvor

Jocelyn McIvor was working as a Heath Care Aid before entering the Indigenous Licenced Practical Nursing Program. She wanted to be a positive role model for her son and provide a good life to her family. The program brought with it an amazing atmosphere to learn and grow with a group of incredible class mates and instructors. 

Jocelyn’s biggest challenge was Math, but with practice she got through it. The most enjoyable part of the program was practicing the skills she learned on real people. “The feeling was great. Being knowledgeable is so rewarding.” This program impacted Jocelyn’s life dramatically. “I love the career I chose and now I can lead a good life with my family. I have become more knowledgeable in the health care field. I am an indigenous woman who grew up in Sandy Bay First Nation and I did it!”
